drive line vibration please help

So I have installed the re 6025 with new leafs.. I got it all done .. not to bad to install.. well I went for a ride to get an alignment and there is some vibration coming from the rear.. I didnt install shims and I tried tc drop but the studs are redic.. so can I get away with shiming until I get my sye..?? And if so how do I set the angle.. my rear axle seems to be pointing up to the tc.. is it not pointing up high enough or does it need to be pointing straight like the tc.. its seems like its not up high enough and is binding because when Im accelerating it vibrates then if I let off it makes kind of a grinding noise???? Please help

How much lift? Vibes could be angles, wear, or both. If you think you are binding, check your yokes, binding will show as contact there and is bad. If you have no sye then the pinion and t-case output shafts should be close to parallel. With an sye the pinion points at the t-case. Go to Tom Woods web site and look in the tech section, it explains it all.
